Bax always fantasized something remarkable would happen in his life. So
when a decrepit man with glowing purple eyes offers him a ring intended
for his estranged father, Bax accepts.
The ring speaks to Bax in a dream, tempting him with a vision of a
powerful djinn. Desperate to make his fantasies a reality, Bax unleashes a
creature called Ifrit, but soon learns this djinn isn't what the ring led
him to believe. Feeding off the depths of his subconscious, the sinister
demon fulfills what he thinks Bax wants by manipulating, threatening, and
murdering. With everyone he loves in danger and a trail of crimes pointing
back at him, Bax must scramble to solve the puzzle that will banish Ifrit
J.L. Sullivan has done a great job of setting the scene and letting us get accustomed to the world in the beginning. I really liked how the action ramped up, the mysteries were revealed and then deepened, and the characters grew both inside and out throughout the course of this book.
I enjoyed seeing how the characters (both good and evil) have developed, learned, and adapted along the way.
This book has plenty of action in it, there are twists and turns, and plenty of danger and mysteries to navigate. It's hard to put down. Well done.
